I think Brent & Jerry might have been playing some of their best music together in spring of 1990. His importance in the band continued to grow with each year and by 1990 he was such an integral part of their new sound.

Jerry seemed happy. The band seemed happy. The fans were happy. Sadly, Brent's addiction got the best of him, as it does with most, and their music was never the same.

There's many points in the GD's career when you can say the music was never the same afterwards. I believe Brent's death truly marked the end of the GD. The majority of my listening has always been '67 - '74 however the past few years I've listened to a lot more Brent and have grown to appreciate him so much more than I previously had.

Watching him push Jerry to step it up during some jams was a sight that I will miss. They'd trade looks and licks with each other and Jerry would have a big grin on his face, knowing some magic was created.

Here's my 80's recommendation. One of the finest shows of the decade:

How true.

The '70's have The Box and a ton of folks who love one vintage, several, or all. We have folks here who could or have written books, articles, ect., of GD in the 60's & '70's. We have folks who can give you set lists if give them a date. Like 1-20-68 or 10-13-68.
The folks with the crazy '80's love aren't here, aren't around, or aren't interested in spending the time to become an '80's LiA (sorry LiA, your name came out of the magic hat first). We are waiting for our prince or princess to come.

Ribbit.

we do need an 80s expert around here. The 80s have much to offer.

I really like...

1984-03-31 and the alpine 89 run. Tho there are goodies scattered all throughout the decade.
